Nephew & Doctor

Waiting at the doctor’s office is so much better when you have a little one with you. Or perhaps that’s just my view, because I’m an aunt. My friend ‘Cuddle Monkey’ and her beautiful seven month old son DJ accompanied me this afternoon to my appointment. I swear this little boy knows just how to capture the hearts of anyone who passes him by. Such an intelligent little one too, he’s already do things that most 1 year olds (or a bit older) do. He’s one of those babies that seems to always have a smile on his face and he definitely knows, he has his Auntie Jane wrapped around his finger already. LOL! With his mommy’s permission I’m sharing the photo attached to this post. I snapped it of him while we were waiting for me to get called back! Love his little face!

Now moving onto about the appointment, it started off where I got weighed, blood pressure and temp checked. The usual rundown – except given I was told I’m “pre-diabetic” at my physical, they did have to poke my finger (the middle to be precise) to do a test. While I wasn’t necessarily happy about that, as let’s face it – I hate needles, it was quick and painless. I am happy to share though, that my numbers were looking better! So here’s to still being diabetes free! I went over with things about my ankle and well, it might not be a sprain. My doctor wants me to see a foot/ankle specialist – so that is what I’m going to do. I don’t have an appointment set up yet, but here’s hoping it happens soon. I also got my tetanus shot as I was due for it. I must say the nurse who gave me the shot is a miracle worker! I swear I did not feel it at all! I’ll definitely have to request her next time I’m told it’s time for a shot. LOL!

Overall it’s been a pretty good day. The appointment went smoothly and well, aside from now being a little unsure of what’s going on with my ankle – it seems my health is for the most part in check. Plus I’m getting some extra time with my youngest nephew (the one in the photo) today, along with his momma. Must confess it makes me miss all my other nieces and nephews when I see one and not the rest. I love being an Aunt!
